Next Thursday, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and Chris Rosenau of Volcano Choir will be performing at the New York Guitar Festival.  Justin and Chris have completed two sets of guitar music to accompany two films by Charlie Chaplin – One AM and Easy Street.  I caught up with Chris this week to see how the music is coming.

So you’re going to Eau Claire this weekend to finish up stuff?

Yep. We have everything written at this point,  now we just need to polish it all up.

How did you go about composing for the films?

Justin was gone so much of 2009 we decided it was best to have me take a crack at a film, just kind of feel it out.  So, it started this summer with me watching a bunch.  Nothing struck me right away.  Chaplin is nuts, but finally I settled on ONE AM.  I wrote some skeletal stuff for Justin and I to begin to work on.
